At Colette Patterns: 'Make Do and Mend: Darning'
When one of my favourite pairs of socks developed a hole last week, I felt it was a timely reminder to learn a skill of my fore-mothers: darning! Having previously waxed lyrical about the importance to carrying these skills on to preserve our existing wardrobes, I could hardly shy away from the challenge. So I cranked open my Make Do and Mend book and got to work. The full instructions I used, the outcome plus some fantastic advice in the comments section can all be seen here at the Colette Patterns blog.
